How do they do this?!
28 September 2000 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

This show is just amazing. I think it's one of the funniest shows on t.v. I have seen many of the episode of the British version, and I'd say both are funny in their own ways. A lot of jokes on the British version are things you might expect to see from those crazy Brits, but that makes it all the better. My two favorite guys on the show would definitely have to be Ryan Stiles, who is on both versions, and Colin Mochorie? I should probably look back on the main page to spell his name right, but I'm lazy! When it comes to making up songs, and really good ones at that, the best is definitely Wayne, who never stops amazing me. These guys are all hilarious and they have so much talent, it isn't funny. It's a great show, and I hope it stays on for decades...give or take a few years.
